4 The Shaw University Bulletin 

General Information 

The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for regular 
students of this and other colleges and universities and for those en- 
gaged during the winter in teaching. 

The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situated 
practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab fares will 
be necessary to visit the shopping district, State Department of Educa- 
tion, State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, and other places 
of educational interest. An exceedingly bracing and healthful climate 
makes this city an ideal place for residence and study. 

The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of 
the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with 
additional specialists in the field of education. 

A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of more than 
17,000 books is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent 
librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides 
them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly news- 
papers provide ample means for the information of students on current 
events. It is the aim of the Administration to make the library one 
of great usefulness in the education of the students in technical knowl- 
edge and general culture. 

Opportunity for observation and directed teaching under the super- 
vision of the University Summer School may be provided under special 
conditions through the Raleigh Public School System. The facilities 
are available for emergency cases only. Special fee $25 in addition to 
regular charges. 

Persons desiring dormitory accommodations during the Summer 
School should indicate that fact to Dr. N. H. Harris, Director of the 
Summer School, not later than June 1 ; send key deposit of $2 with 
application prior to that date, making money-order payable to Shaw 
University. The University has adequate housing for those who desire 
to live on the campus during the Summer School. The women students 
are under the supervision of the Director of Women's activities who 
is assisted by Dormitory Hostesses and the men students are under the 
supervision of the Director of Men's Activities. 

The Shaw University Bulletin 


Tennis, croquet, softball, and sightseeing tours are among the forms 
of recreation provided by the University. 

In addition, several social events are held for the students and fac- 
ulty of the Summer School. 


The Bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching and 
administrative positions for students and former students. It exists 
for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school officials over 
the State and of helping students and former students to find teaching 
and administrative positions for which they are best suited. 


Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall on Mondays, 
Wednesdays, and Fridays. All students are invited to attend these 
exercises. Special addresses are arranged and interesting recitals 


Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips from 
summer schools previously attended, diplomas, or other evidences of 
training. These will be needed for registration the first day. No 
student should expect to enter and receive credit after Thursday, June 
8, for the first term and after Friday, July 14, for the second term. 


Written application should be made and forwarded in advance. A 
transcript signed by the president or principal of the school attended, 
containing a full record of the subjects pursued by the student with the 
time devoted to each, and his standing in the same, should be sent to 
the Register of the University before the student registers. Applica- 
tion blanks will be furnished on request and should be properly filled 
out and returned promptly. 

Courses are organized to serve the needs of the following persons : 

(a) High School graduates 

(b) College students 

(c) College graduates interested in renewing certificates 

(d) Holders of any of the following certificates: 

1. Elementary — any class 

2. Primary "C," "B," "A"

Workshop-Seminar for Principals 
and Supervisors 

Because of the success of the workshop-seminar of other years, 
plans are being made to provide during the first session of the Summer 
School a workshop-seminar for teachers, principals, and supervisors. 
The workshop seminar is designed to give its members an opportunity 
to clarify their thinking on problems of educational philosophy, and 
to give them assistance in defining educational objectives. Each mem- 
ber will be given a chance to work on problems which are encountered 
in his particular school situation. Those who bring similar problems 
will be encouraged to work in small, informal groups. In addition, 
they will have easy access to the services of a group of sympathetic 
and competent workshop specialists. 

Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours in 
supervision and administration. These hours will fulfill the State's 
requirement for the principal's or supervisor's certificate, and, in ad- 
dition, serve to renew certificates. 

Registration for workshop will begin June 4. Special fee of $3.50 
in addition to regular charges. 

For further information, please feel free to communicate with the 
Director of Summer School.

Annually during the second week in June, Shaw University pro-

cooperation with the Woman's Home and Foreign Missionary Conven- 
tion of North Carolina. The program provides especially prepared 

14 The Shaw University Bulletin 

courses of study dealing with subjects of special interest to pastors; 
discussions and open forums on topics of vital interest; addresses and 
platform talks by specialists in various phases of religious work; and 
opportunities for fellowship with fellow ministers of varied experi- 
ences and backgrounds. 

The Institute for Ministers and the Women's Leadership Training 
Conference will be held at the same time, June 11-15. Registration, 
$1.50; room and board for the entire week, $8.50. For further 
information ministers should write to Dean W. R. Strassner, Shaw 
University, Raleigh, North Carolina; women missionary workers 
should write to Mrs. Ellen S. Alston, Post Office Box 1818, Raleigh, 
North Carolina. 

II. Ministers' Summer Academic Courses 

The Reverend MOSES N. DELANEY, Director 

TWO WEEKS: Beginning Monday, June 18 and ending Friday, 

June 29. 

Shaw University is pleased to offer this summer a two-weeks' study 
course for ministers who desire to improve themselves in literary 
background and in Bible study. These are not courses for college 
credit but are designed for ministers who do not have the credits 
necessary for college admission. 

The classes will meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that 
ministers may return to their church fields if desired. The fees will 
be $10 a week including course fees, room and board for those who 
bring their own sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The charges will 
be $12.00 per week for those who fail to bring their linen. Persons 
not living in the dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. For further 
information write to The Reverend M. N. DeLaney, Shaw University, 
Raleigh, North Carolina. 

III. Women's Missionary Study Courses 

TWO WEEKS : Beginning Monday, June 18 and ending Friday 

June 29. 

This summer Shaw University continues a summer study program 
for Missionary Women as another phase of the program of the Mis- 
sionary Training Department. The work will be so organized that 

The Shaw University Bulletin 15 

over a period of years women who have completed the total program 
will receive a certificate. These are not the courses which are to be 
taken by the students in the college working for the A.B. degree with 
a major in Religious Education, but are designed for women who are 
already active in the missionary program in their churches, or wish to 
prepare themselves for the improvement of such activities. 

Classes meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that the Mis- 
sionary Workers may return home each week-end if desired. The 
fees will be $10 a week including course fees, room and board for 
those who bring their own sheets, pillow cases and towels. The 
charges will be $12.00 a week for those who fail to bring their linen. 
Persons not living in the dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. For 
further information write to Mrs. Ellen S. Alston, Box 1818, Raleigh, 
North Carolina.
